This is the jolly man of the north. On our recent trip to the north Noel, or Noelie as we call him, introduced my southern born children to snowshoes. They had never seen them in anything other than in a book 0r pictures.
Noel and his wife Laura hosted a wonderful holiday event with the northern relatives. My kids had the chance to spend time with Aunts, Cousins, Uncles, Grandparents, Great-Grandparents and multiple generations of the family.
We had a grand time sledding the hills around thier home. With the temperatures we have today that was warm in comparison.
